Our Story

Where did it all begin?

South Coast Adventures story began in 2021, we wanted to be a leading outdoor activities provider based in Poole Harbour, that had something for everyone. We wanted to be somewhere that was authentic, friendly and approachable.

It formed from a passion to want to show others the outdoors, and what better location than Poole Harbour. We love the outdoors, the thrill of having adventures, going places that we've never been before, meeting new people and most importantly making memories. We're very confident in our ability to teach anyone how to kayak, even if it is your first time, or you’ve done it before.

We take a lot of pride in showing others the magic of outdoor activities, especially when it's watersports. This is why we have dedicated our time here at South Coast Adventures to creating affordable, fun and exciting outdoor activities that can be enjoyed by all. From kayaking and paddleboarding to climbing and more - we're sure you will love it!
